This two-wheel tabletop robot was developed in collaboration with Purdue University.
This robot platform is intended for use as a programming test platform for university and high school classrooms. Additionally, it can be used for custom tabletop robotics projects. Skitter can handle several sensor inputs and has robust drive motors with encoder feedback. The frame is a strong sheet metal construction with a hard-anodized finish.
